Opera 12.17 and Facebook lag

  • Since Facebook changed their layout 2014, using it with Opera 12.16 (and 12.17), FB lags quite a lot (high CPU) and is very uncomfortable to use. I think it has to do with FB scripting. It's not only me, this is a problem also with others i know (using Opera 12.17 and either W7 or W8).

    I have tried several things to fix this problem via settings changes, but with no joy. Btw, with IE browser there's NO problem.

    I would like to continue using 12.x version, and it would be really nice if you could take a look with this problem.

    Thanks.

    Opera user since 2004.

  • I have the same problem with Facebook. I do not want to switch to another browser. :(

    Yes, And it's not very nice to use some other browser just for Facebook. Really would like have Opera 12.18 with this problem solved. Thumbs Up

  • You Opera 12 and Opera 20 together. You will be able to see the development of the new one while use the older one

    Don't quite understand.

  • Install Opera 12.x and Opera 20 in your computer

  • Ok I installed it. Some question marks here: Urlfilter/contentfilter, Import password, Site Preferences, Modify toolbars, use of custom context menu..

    I Have already tried Opera 15 when it came out, didn't like it. And now with 20. the same thing. Already uninstalled it.

    There ABSOLUTELY needs to be Opera 12.x with this Facebook bug fixed!

  • Not going to happen I'm afraid.
    Opera 12 will only receive important security patches from now on.
    There won't be any improvement in site compatibility, in fact it will only get worse as time goes on.
    In fact I have a custom button on my Opera 12.17 toolbar, which if I have a problem with a site I just press it and the page opens in Opera 22 (the Developer version). After I've done what I need to do there I just close Opera 22 and go back to surfing with Opera 12.
    :-)

  • Opera 12 will only have security updates, you will have more problems then now.

  • ok. But there's a chance that FB changes the way Opera works better with it. Thanks for all the answers!

  • Opera 20 is the same as many other browsers that can not and nothing to me is useless. It is a pity that the development of Opera 12 is over. It's time to find a different browser.
    (sorry for my english)

  • Is partly wines Opera Presto engine rather. We can't remedy, isn't developed. I like the new Blink (Opera 20).

  • For what it's worth, I find that Facebook works badly with Firefox as well. I'm certain it's Facebook's scripting. They have all those ads on the side, which constantly refresh, and certain browsers aren't built to handle it. It's all part of the "new Web", which has gone mobile.

    I've been trying lots of different browsers this past week, and found two or three that work well with Facebook. Opera 20 is one of them. I won't say the others on this forum because that wouldn't be fair to the Opera team.

  • I just intalled Firefox 15.01 + FB Purity extension. Facebook works very fast and smooth.

  • Urlfilter/contentfilter, Modify toolbars, use of custom context menu
    Only via third-party solutions or extensions.

    Import password
    There's a command to run to import saved passwords from 12.x to the new Opera if it didn't import automatically. If you use a master password there's an additional parameter.

    Site Preferences
    Depends on what you need, you'll find JS, cookies, etc, in the settings plus the zoom level which is saved automatically for each domain. There's also an extension to extend and facilitate the use of these options in daily use.

  • I will stick with Opera 12.x + FF 15.01 for Facebook, for now.

  • What's the point of using that outdated and unsupported Firefox version? Plus, it doesn't offer half of the features you asked.

    It's only for Facebook. And it works very well with it. 15.0.1 was the first version of FF to support Spdy version 3 protocol, which FB also supports.

  • 15.0.1 was the first version of FF to support Spdy version 3 protocol

    Correction: 15.0 was the first version of FF to support Spdy version 3 protocol. 15.0.1 is just some cosmetic update i suppose.

  • I con't find opera mail from website. Please help me.
